One woman's midlayer is another woman's outerwear. The Arc'teryx Women's Maeven Fleece Hooded Jacket is just that: for the alpine adventurist, this sleek fleece hoodie slips under hardshells and down jackets when you're facing arctic air, and urban explorers grab this low-profile jacket to wear as a top layer when sliding amongst the shadows and ducking in and out of buildings in search of the ultimate croissant. The streamlined hood stays close to your head without squeezing your brains, and has enough room to accommodate the lovely new toque your great aunt Mathilda just made.
Four-way stretch fabric lets you reach for the stars without ripping your coat. Polartec Hardface technology give this hoodie a toughness most mafia-types want. Not only does the jacket resist water, twig picks, and abrasions, the face stays smooth so you can layer without issue. Elastic binding at the cuffs and hem prevent you from being a sail in the wind and cold air from sneaking in where it doesn't belong. Large hand pockets hold essentials, whether you're in town or hot on the trail of the Yeti.

I tried many different models of mid-weight fleece jackets this fall and ended up going back to Arcetryx for the quality and fit I wanted. I was looking for a power-stretch fleece to be used as an outer layer in the fall, and mid-layer as our Canadian winters get colder. I need a layer that is light and warm and flexible for my outdoor activities and this jacket just won my heart. A plus for me is the way the neck fits; it is high and you can adjust the snugness easily and the hood does not pull the neck back, like a lot of models do. I am 5'8", 128 lbs, and the medium is a perfect mid-layer fit. Great arm length. This athletically styled hoody is cozy and snug, light enough to wear indoors and warm enough to hit the hiking trails with; plan to LIVE in it this winter!
This is a gorgeous jacket! It's a smooth-faced powerstretch fleece that will quickly become your favorite wear-everywhere layer. Think of it as a techy zip-up hoody. It fits true to size and is built with typical Arc'teryx quality. You'll have this jacket for a long time.
